We’ve been testing text-to-speech in several languages across the office (English, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch) and were surprised at how good it was narrating in all of them. Including picking out excerpts in a second language. When we tested Portuguese with an English excerpt in the middle, the narration flowed seamlessly between them. We’ve also tested the translation for a couple of languages and while not perfect (it certainly can’t correctly translate genders from English to Portuguese, for instance), it’s leaps and bounds ahead of your regular Web Translation.
